Ride Safe, Ride Smart: Why Choose UL-Certified Electric Bikes and Electric Scooters

Ride Safe, Ride Smart: Why Choose UL-Certified Electric Bikes and Electric Scooters

Safety concerns are up there in the list of the most common questions we receive from customers everyday. This does not surprise us—electric scooters and electric bikes are meant to be used regularly, if not everyday, and need to be as safe as possible. 

This is why Electric Kicks has taken lengths to ensure every single product we stock is manufactured by a reputable company with high regard for rider well-being. Furthermore, many of our electric bikes and scooters are UL-certified. But what does this mean?

Let’s discuss what UL certification means and why it matters for your next electric ride.

What is UL Certification and Why Does It Matter?

The acronym “UL” stands for Underwriters Laboratories, a global safety science company established in 1894. Its primary mission is to promote “safe, secure and sustainable living and working environments,” achieved through science and research.

This independent organisation has since developed industry-wide safety standards by conducting meticulous testing on products like home appliances, electronic devices, industrial equipment, cables, and more. 

As battery-operated products have become more commonplace, UL has also developed a stringent battery safety testing procedure, a process that includes evaluating the battery’s performance under stress and overall reliability. 

Hence, if your electric bike or electric scooter sports the UL-Certified label, it means it has been tested for optimal safety and quality. 

Why Choose UL-Certified Electric Bikes and Electric Scooters

The presence of a UL-Certified label means a product has been tested and passed UL’s rigorous safety testing, which translates to a high level of confidence and peace of mind for consumers like you. Here are some of the benefits of choosing a UL-certified electric ride:

Low Electrical Risks

UL certification involves testing an electric ride’s electrical components, including its battery, charger, and controller. Thus, a UL-certified product assures reduced risks of electrical malfunctions, which can lead to overheating, short circuits, and potential fires.

Reliable Battery Performance

Aside from ensuring your e-bike or e-scooter is risk-free, UL standards also make sure your battery meets the highest safety benchmarks when it comes to charging, storage, and overall performance. 

Industry-Leading Quality

UL certification also involves an overall assessment of an electric bike or scooter’s frame, components, and materials used. This means you are getting a better-built product with the greatest possible level of durability and reliability. 

Compliance With Regulations

E-mobility becoming more popular has prompted the development of relevant safety regulations. On that note, some buildings, workplaces, and communities have implemented stricter rules, only allowing UL-certified models within their premises.

While a UL-certified electric ride might come with a slightly higher upfront cost, the benefits far outweigh the price tag. It’s an investment in peace of mind, an assurance that you’re getting a reliable ride with class-leading safety features, not just for yourself but for everyone around you.
